What are Mobile Sources?
Mobile Sources include a variety of motor vehicles and mobile equipment that generate air emissions, and that autonomously move or can be moved from place to place. There are two categories of mobile sources: on-road vehicles and non-road vehicles.
On-road vehicles include:
- Passenger vehicles such as sedans
- Light-duty trucks such as minivans, pickup trucks and SUVs
- Heavy-duty vehicles such as commercial trucks and buses
- Medium-duty passenger vehicles such as passenger or cargo vans
Non-road vehicles include:
- Recreational vehicles such as (gasoline-powered) dune buggies, moto-cross motorcycles, or golf carts
- Construction equipment and vehicles such as paving equipment, excavators, or earth movers.
- Industrial equipment such as forklifts, sweepers or material handling motor vehicles
- Lawn and garden equipment
- Farm equipment
- Logging equipment
- Airport service equipment and vehicles
- Railway maintenance equipment
- Marine vessels
The purpose of the Mobile Sources Control Program within Air Quality Management is to implement measures and programming that will reduce motor vehicle-related pollution.
